The weather in Sri Lanka

The Northern and Eastern parts of the country are dry areas, while the wet zone can be found in the South Western region. If you are traveling to the Central Highlights, you will be surprised by the drop in temperature due to the high mountains – make sure to pack your warm clothes when going for instance to Nuwara Eliya. This mountain area, together with Kandy, are always experiencing a mixed climate.

Discover the Best Local Food Spots at Night

Manjeet was a wonderful tour guide. I was worried things would be a bit awkward with a one on one tour but she was very informative, easy to talk to and know lots about the food I was trying. Highly recommended!

Singapore's Tasty Tour for Little Foodies

I am so pleased I booked WithLocals for our recent 4 day break in Singapore. We met William the first morning of our stay in Singapore - it was the best! Thank you so much William for showing us parts of Singapore we would never have found out about in such a short space of time. William was friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the city. We tried some amazing foods and he was also flexible with altering the tour to suit our needs - even letting us stop off to try Durian (with our plastic gloves at the ready!) I couldn't recommend this tour highly enough, it heavily influenced what we did in the subsequent days - we will never forget it and can't wait to visit Singapore again one day.

Street Food Tour of Colombo: the 10 Tastings

The food tour was amazing, Miyuru was a great guide, explaining a lot about the Sri Lankan cousine and also about the city of Colombo. He took us to real local places, which we definitely wouldn't visit on our own and the food was delicious. We also had a lot of fun, so all in all it is a must do tour when you are in Colombo.
